Description1924 World Series Games 1, 2 & 6 Full Ticket. If, like most Americans, you occasionally find yourself baffled by the choices made in our nation's capital, here's one more oddity to add to that long list. During the glorious Championship season of 1924, which would result in Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson's sole Series win, some tickets for the Fall Classic games at Griffith Park were issued in a stacked block featuring Games One, Two and Six. With the seat number only posted at the top, the fan would have to bring the entire stack to the first game, at which point the first stub would be removed, and so on. Instead of removing the tickets each has a punch hole which must have served as a way of acknowledging its use. The lower left corner has chipped away and there is an inconsequential "x" in pencil near the "Section E" reference. Crease free. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.
Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
